Proposal Number: 04110096
Proposal Title: Portable detector for low vapor pressure toxic chemicals
Topic Number: H-SB04.1-001
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: New System/Technologies to Detect Low Vapor Pressure Chemicals (e.g., TICs)
Organization: Synkera Technologies Inc.
Address: 2605 Trade Centre Ave, Suite C
Longmont, CO 80503-4605  
Abstract: Synkera Technologies proposes to develop an innovative new field detector for low vapor pressure toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). This detector will be based upon the integration of a unique low power pre-concentrator with an array of solid state electrochemical sensors. The solid state electrochemical sensors will be based upon the use of solid polymer electrolytes with microband electrodes. The sensor arrays will be built by a novel scalable process that results in very small, low cost and high performance sensors. These arrays of sensors will be able to detect and classify a wide range of TICs. The ultimate detector design will be focused on the development of a small, lightweight rugged and inexpensive instrument that could be used to identify low vapor pressure TICs in many diverse locations.
